Real Housewives of Orange County “OG” Vicki Gunvalson may have been demoted and lost her orange for Season 14, but she still came ready to rumble. Her favorite sparring partner is co-star Kelly Dodd, and the bad blood goes way back.
Kelly accused Vicki of breaking “girl code” by fixing up Kelly’s ex-husband Michael Dodd with one of Vicki’s friends. Vicki and her then-boyfriend Steve Lodge went on double dates with the couple, but Vicki never gave Kelly a heads up. Kelly was furious.
During the Real Housewives of Orange County cast trip in Arizona, Kelly Dodd slammed Gina Kirschenheiter as an “unaccomplished woman.” Truth be told, most of us know nothing about Gina other than her propensity for ratchet hair extensions and overdone eye makeup. I have no clue how accomplished Gina is. In all fairness, I’ve never heard of any of the RHOC ladies until they joined the show. So, I only know the background information that they choose to provide.
Needless to say, Gina did not take too kindly to Kelly’s diss, especially since Kelly said this after she hit Gina on the head. And this was right after Kelly hit that bowl on Shannon Beador’s head. Neither of those actions enhanced Kelly’s credibility, but she stood by her statement about Gina.
If you crammed any more drama, hijinks, meltdowns, and hysterias (and medical issues!) into this episode of Real Housewives Of Orange County I think it would explode a la Kelly Dodd after 2 cocktails and exposure to a snarky meme. Things would just come flying out, every which way, and the only thing that would be left standing amid the rubble would be Tamra Judge and the two giant inflatable jugs she has strapped to her chest as a bullet-proof vest/getaway life raft.
I literally can’t even begin to dissect all the switching animosities and loyalties, but all I have to say is Tamra is masterful at manipulating these women in a tizzy of stupidity. And Kyle Richards thinks Lisa Vanderpump plays chess…
Last week, the Real Housewives of Orange County stars were in Miami. On tonight’s episode, they had to Key West, aka the place where David Beador may have cheated on Shannon Beador.
Ironically, it seems like Shannon is the one who puts the drama into motion during this Key West trip. She tells Kelly Dodd what Vicki Gunvalson has been up to behind her back, even though Emily Simpson and Gina Kirschenheiter had been in the know. Apparently, Vicki got in touch with a woman Kelly fought with at a bar. Oh, Vicki, she really did what she could to save that orange. Unfortunately for her, it didn’t work.
Alexis Bellino seemed to largely disappear after leaving the Real Housewives of Orange County after four seasons in 2013. Sure, she posted a lot on social media, but we didn’t hear much about her until her divorce from Jim Bellino last year. Since then, Alexis has been popping up on the semi-regular. Earlier this year, she made some waves when she posted a few Instagram pics with her new man, Andy Bohn. And Alexis was soon was faced with Andy’s estranged wife making a public plea for privacy for her family due to Alexis flaunting her new relationship on social media.
Alexis is currently starring on Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars-Family Edition with her mother and is also making an upcoming appearance on Below Deck. Something tells me Alexis won’t be as sweet as Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Cynthia Bailey was when she was on the show! Alexis also appeared on RHOC this season due to her friendship with Emily Simpson. Apparently, all this attention wasn’t enough, as Alexis is now in a bit of a social media kerfuffle over comments she made about her household help on Instagram.
This season of Real Housewives of Orange County was tough for Emily Simpson. First, she struggled to hold her household together while she worked. Where was her husband, Shane “Lil Bitch” Simpson?
He was holed up in a hotel to study for the California Bar exam and was unavailable to his family. Shane couldn’t even touch base by phone. He failed that test in February and re-took it in July.
Most people celebrated Thanksgiving with their families and significant others. But, get ready for this one: Kenya Moore and her daughter Brooklyn Daly went over to Sheree Whitfield’s house. Yes, you read that correctly. They left Moore Manor for Chateau Sheree. Is this Sheree’s way of trying to weasel her way back onto Real Housewives of Atlanta? If so, I am all for it. I don’t understand why they let her go in the first place. She filmed all of those collect calls with her prison boo and she knows how to read a foe to filth. The campaign for Sheree’s comeback starts now. Or at least it does in my eyes. I just want to know where Marc Daly spent Thanksgiving.
Real Housewives of New York star Tinsley Mortimer used Thanksgiving as an opportunity to show off the $300K engagement ring Scott Kluth gave her on social media.
You guys I’m sorry – I am having Thanksgiving fever and 15 houseguests, and I just cannot get it together with the Real Housewives Of Orange County nonsense today.
Tamra Judge and Kelly Dodd are like your mother and your mother-in-law at the same holiday dinner. They’re not gonna speak or look at each other. But, they are going to viciously jab from all corners until it all comes bubbling to the surface over the way to make gravy or something.
Braunwyn Windham-Burke invited all the women to Miami so they can understand her better. Apparently, we’re now defining our personalities by cities, so Braunwyn is a Miami person. In Miami, she liked having sex with her husband, clubbed constantly, and wore skanky clothes to the grocery store. Whereas in Orange County, Braunwyn has to hide her wild side? I don’t get it… How was Braunwyn doing all this partying in between 52 pregnancies, nursing 19 babies, and also well, ostensibly, parenting? We don’t ever get a clear answer about why they left Miami, just like we don’t get a clear answer about why this is the sad-sack trip RHOC got this season. I blame Tamra because I blame her for everything.
